Students identify the political party that best represents the statement. This activity is common core because students analyze and interpret quotes from both Hamilton and Jefferson. A fun critical thinking activity.
I have also used this activity as a class review. Students go to either the "Hamilton", or "Jefferson" side of the room. Another idea is that students write the quotes on post it notes and then stick them on the appropriate wall where the teacher has posted a picture of Hamilton or Jefferson.
